Attended GRI-5 Today

Real Estate Agent with Elite Realty Group

Today, myself and 64 other local realtors, attended GRI 5 class in Benton, KY. The class was entitled Systems for Success. For anyone not familar with GRI (Graduate Realtor Institute), it is a series of classes realtors attend for a variety of reasons. Among the many reasons to attend the classes, we learn to better work with buyers, sellers and other agents. We also learn how to conduct business more efficiently.

I particularly like attending these classes because I get to meet new peers and talk with friends. One of the ways we meet new peers is by working in groups on brief group collaborations. We also exchange business cards so we can provide client referrals to some of the agents we meet (networking).

Of all the good conversation I had there was one thing in particular that was said that most, if not all, agents had noticed. Most agents have noticed a significant increase in business since January 1st. Some agents said their buyers were waiting until after the annauguration took place. I personally noticed an increase in business shortly before that event.

Bill...I took the GRI here in Georgia. It was 3 "modules" 2 were 3 days and one was a week in Savannah! It was great, but I can honestly say I think I've learned more here in The Rain!

But I'm glad I took  it....

Bill, I need to start on my GRI..I completed my CRS and loved all of those classes.  Knowledge is power, don't you think?  Let's hope all of the buyers get off the fence now:)

The GRI series is fantastic.  I took it many years ago when I first became and agent.  I wanted to learn more so I could service my clients better.  The 10 classes have paid for themselves beyond imagination.  Knowledge is power.
